Women's sunglasses are an essential accessory for outdoor events. With them, you can round out almost any outfit with the perfect amount of allure and mystery. Whether you are wearing a beautiful Women's Romper or rocking the casual tee and jeans combo, sunglasses will add a stylish flair to the appearance.
If you're looking to find the right pair of women's sunglasses for yourself, first get familiar with the types.
Aviator glasses are a classic. With their unique look — a thin metal frame, double bridge, and teardrop-shaped lenses — they're perhaps the most recognized type of eyeglasses on the planet. They've been around for almost a century and have gone from American test pilots to Hollywood celebrities to becoming an ageless style accessory.
A pair of Wayfarer sunglasses has a broad plastic upper rim that extends to a point (sometimes known as "wings"). The original Wayfarers were sunglasses with a blackened rim to match the dark lens tint, but today's Wayfarers may be purchased in virtually any size and form, whether as vision correcting glasses or fashionable eyewear.
If you're looking to make a statement with your sunglasses, go for oval-shaped frames. These are essentially halfway between round and square sunglasses, but they make a strong impression with their large frame size. The most well-known oval frame is the Audrey Hepburn wayfarer.
Cat-eye sunglasses are one of the flashiest styles you can rock. These frames have an upswept cat-eye shape that covers the wearer's entire eye. These sunglasses gained popularity in the 1950s after celebrities like Marilyn Monroe and Elizabeth Taylor started sporting them.
Fashionistas everywhere are reaching for holographic glasses to give their looks a little extra pizzazz. These have been popular on the runway and in the streets some time now, but expect them to keep gaining momentum until next summer.
Half-rim sunglasses are characterized by their thick plastic frames. Don't be afraid to try out some more unique colors with this style of sunglasses, as they can go with almost any outfit.
Split-frame sunglasses have a unique design that separates the bottom half of the frames from the top. These are a stylish way to stand out in a crowd without going overboard with a pattern or color.
Round sunglasses are exactly what they sound like: circular shades with a strong curve in the top half of the lens. For women, these glasses give off a quirky and confident vibe and pair best with casual outfits.
Shield sunglasses are shaped like an actual shield. The front portion of the lenses goes right up to the sides and bottom but leaves the top free. These angular shades add a sense of toughness to your look.
Here are a few commonly asked questions about women’s sunglasses and their most appropriate answers.
The color of your sunglasses depends on what you are up to and not what you are wearing. You might wear dark-colored sunglasses with a light-colored Women's Top, or wear a light one with a dark dress. However, dark colors are perfect for daily use and most sunny outdoor activities. Light colors are primarily good in low-to-medium light areas like skiing, snowboarding, and other snow sports that require visibility.
The answer is “no” again. Eyewear should not usually conceal or hide your eyebrows. Why? Because eyebrows are an excellent way to express yourself in terms of fashion (makeup) and conversational gestures.
No, your glasses should not rest on your cheeks, and they should be level across your face. Your eyeglass frames' temples should feel sturdy around or over your ears without pinching or being uncomfortable.
When choosing the right sunglasses, the size of your head matters more than its shape. Remember, head size means how wide and tall your head is, not its shape. Any pair of glasses that gives sufficient protection from the sun and provides an excellent view to your eyes is perfect for your face. But, if you want to further add to your glamorous look, try wearing Women’s Jewelry that compliments your eyewear too.
Standard 100% UV lenses will provide the same level of protection as polarized lenses against UV radiation. Polarized sunglasses can, however, improve your vision and relieve eye strain by reducing glare.
